With the hire of a seasoned D2 coach in Bobby Wallace, the state of Lion football is in good hands. Coach Wallace is a respected coach and has always ran a clean program. Coach Wallace understands what draws crowds. One of which is winning. The other is recruiting local talent. With recruiting local talent it gives the players families a reason to buy a ticket and come to a game. The 2012 signing class of 41 includes 11 local players and 4 Jr college players. Missing from that list? D1 players that were dismissed from their D1 school for one reason or another or just transferred down to D2 to keep playing, mostly because they had their feelings hurt in D1 because of lack of playing time. Missing are the players that tried to fit an “I” in team. The “me” players and just general thugs.
Now the current players and new recruits can build a bond between themselves and build team chemistry. Something that builds winning seasons and builds championships. They can now focus on the right things in order to produce another title for the Lions, not only in the GSC but another national title.
Lions football has just gotten exciting for me again.
